For Goodness Sake, Fred and his sister Adele Astaire, opened in 1922, transferring to London a year later where it was then renamed Stop Flirting. After the the future Edward VIII saw it, the Astaires were propelled into the European artistic and social limelight.

The book was written by Fred Jackson with lyrics by Arthur Jackson, music by William Daly and Paul Lannin and "additional music" by George Gershwin and "additional lyrics" by Arthur Francis (Ira Gershwin's early nom de plume). Songs include "I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise", "Oh, Gee, Oh, Gosh", and "The Whichness of Whatness".
